"Understanding Israeli Society"

Buy your tickets for Achshav Yisrael's fourth program!

Door "Understanding Israeli Society," will take place on two consecutive Sundays, February 14 & 21, 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. in the Main Meeting Room.

Israel is both a young country and one of the oldest civilizations in the world. During this special, two-session Achshav Yisrael program, Abraham Silver will lead us on an exploration of Israeli society. We will learn how Israeli society developed, as well as how it operates and what it looks like today. His insights will provide participants with a unique perspective on who Israelis are and how they think, and a more multi-faceted appreciation of the modern State of Israel’s successes and challenges.

Abraham Silver is a lecturer on architecture at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. An expert on Israeli culture and history, he has devoted the last twenty five years to creating and implementing innovative and informal educational experiences with the goal of helping people of all ages and backgrounds understand their connection to the land of Israel and the Jewish people.

Due to a limited number of spots, advance registration/ticketing is required. Please sign up only if you can attend both Sunday morning sessions.

A light breakfast will be served during each session. Tickets are $36 per person (covering both sessions) and are available for purchase at: https://www.universe.com/understandingisrael
